Liberals use the area of the brain used for emotions and feelings .... Conservatives use the part of the brain used in logic,, analysis and objectivity. Yup ... it actually makes sense.

Yes.

I read the study, and this is the money quote that confirms my observations, liberals are fundamentally insecure.

snip

The insula and amygdala often function together in processing situations of risk and uncertainty [30]. The amygdala plays a critical role in orienting of attention to external cues [31] and fear conditioning [32]; however, this structure is also important for other emotional information processing and behavior [33]. Functional neuroimaging studies have shown amygdala activation in reward related processing [34], encoding of emotionally salient information [35], risk-taking [36], processing positively-valenced stimuli [37], and appetitive/aversive olfactory learning [38]. In comparison, neuroimaging studies of insular cortex have observed critical involvement of this neural structure in pain [39], interoceptive [40], emotion-related [41], cognitive [42], and social processing [43]. In particular, the insular cortex is important for representation of internal bodily cues crucial for subjective feeling states and interoceptive awareness [40], [44]. That differences in the processing of risk and uncertainty differentiate liberals and conservatives suggests an alternative way of conceptualizing ideology.

There are two types of liberals, the masters and the slaves. While your statement is true of the rank and file parasite liberal, make no mistake that the leftist elites are extremely calculating. They have to be in order to control there lesseres in the political machine. Think about this, if you wanted to become rich and powerful but didn’t have the drive or ability to produce something that would make you wealthy, what more logical, brilliant, and evil way could you get it than becoming a bigwig in the rat party.
